Taylor Swift is glad she was vocal following her split from Joe Jonas - because she wanted her fans to know the truth about their break-up.
The singer admitted she had split from Joe Jonas after months of press speculation surrounding their relationship - and revealed the pair ended their romance with a brief telephone call that lasted only 27 seconds.
And the star confesses she decided against keeping quiet about the fling, because the constant denials would send her fans "crazy".
She tells MTV, "With this situation, I feel like I owed it to my fans to be like, 'Look, it happened, you weren't crazy,' and address it. And I addressed it, and, you know, that's a chapter in my life that's closed now."
During the intervening time, Joe Jonas is reportedly dating 10,000 BC actress Camilla Belle - just weeks after splitting from Taylor Swift.
The 19-year-old is rumored to have been quietly romancing Belle, 22, following her appearance in the video to his band's latest single, Lovebug.
A source said; "They met on the set of his music video. All the guys always had thought she was really pretty and that's why they asked her to be in it.
"It was only after doing the video that they began to date. They are not public about it but they've just been hanging out with their friends and Joe's brothers. They are very private about it.
"She's a really good girl and it seems they share a lot of the same characteristics and morals."
